Lemon Curd and Blueberry Pavlova

What is it pavlova's going down so well at dinner parties?  Well, I thought I would give this a quick go... store bought lemon curd, but you could make your own and a fresh punnet of blueberries... Done! 
Yummy lemon curd with blueberries scattered on top! What more could we have asked for!

I used the following recipe, but you could try your personal favourite and of course, add whichever topping tickles your fancy! 

3 eggs seperated
200g caster sugar

I/2 jar of store bought lemon curd
1 punnet blueberries
300ml whipped cream

1) Preheat the oven to 150C.  
2) Line 2 baking trays with greaseproof paper or silicone sheets
3)Using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until they have formed soft peaks.  Gradually the caster sugar and keep mixing until the mixture forms stiff peaks.  The mixture should appear glossy and thick.
4) Divide the mixture and spoon onto each of the baking sheets, in 12-15cm rounds.  
Bake for 15minutes, then reduce the heat to 120C and bake for a further 50minutes.  
5) Turn off the oven and leave them to cool in there completely.
6) Whip up the whipped cream, if required. 
7) Spread the lemon curd over the pavlova and add 2-3 tablespoons of the whipped cream.  Sprinkly with half of the blueberries.
8)  Add the top layer of pavlova on top and repeat!
How simple was that!! :-)
